psychology is of this legislative deference. it's very rare we have a sitting u.s. senator elected president. you wonder if he's overall differential to congress. i talked to a democrat saying everyone is ringing their hands saying, maybe the white house should have written the legislation. he was going to get it however he did it. health care was going to hurt. it's a hard thing to do. you can second-guess the legislative strategy but this was coming either way. >> the problem with the president, and they may be right in the end, he's lost about 20 points in his approval rating. he's upside down on domestic policy. now he and his attorney general are weighing in once again on an issue that just absolutely eviscerated a lot of democrats in the spring, and that is the cia. they badly bungled that and now they are wading back into it. boy, bad timing. really, really bad timing. mika is off. speaking of bad timing, the guy that always has -- his timing always couldn't be worse. >> a hair off. >> always just a hair off. >> the building always blows up two seconds before he's about to -- willie g

. >> joe, one quick question on this. well, two things. one, is bill clinton going to tell us the health of kim jong-il? i'm just curious. you see the picture, whether he is wasting away. now we've finally see him. >> that's a great point and something i'm sure our intelligence agencies can't even -- couldn't even get it more than bill clinton can. >> maybe that's the reason they decided to tell him. >> a lot of people wondering whether he's still there or not. barnicle calls him crazy every morning but really not only does he provide a great service by getting these two young women back but to be able to sit there and come back and report -- >> a three-hour dinner. that's what i was thinking, he's probably observing everything about him and what goes on at that dinner. >> you know what struck me, your very perceptive analysis -- >> and we're not used to that here. >> what would have happened had we had a former president able to go to tehran before the war in iraq began with saddam hussein for two or three hours and say this guy is a whack job, he has nothing. what would have happened?
